Not as good as the original, but not bad.

I miss both of these actors! They were great together! This movie was written as a 90s comedy, but it still had some funny moments. The only thing I didn't like was hearing Jack Lemon drop the F-bomb. It would've been funnier if they had left it clean. Still, it is and was an entertaining movie for its time.

Neil Simon + Lemmon + Matthau = Killer Comedy!
Verified purchase
Neil Simon is a brilliant screenwriter, and Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are the perfect team to bring it to life. In "The Odd Couple II" Oscar and Felix are reunited for a wedding after 17 years of silence. Unfortunately for them, everything goes wrong during their trip. While trying to get to their kids' wedding, they get arrested three times, attempt to hit on two younger women, and take a ride from an old man who dies a short way into the trip!

I have read all the complaints of juvenile humor and inappropriate dialogue, but in my opinion, this is still a funny movie, and a beautiful tale of friendship between two clashing personalities. And, as a history piece, this is worth watching because it was Matthau's and Lemmon's last film together.

If you liked the first "Odd Couple" movie and the TV series, you will enjoy this sequel.

Fantastic Movie,Horrible Display
Verified purchase
It didn't say anywhere in the description that this wasn't a "regular" movie; by that I mean at a resolution/display size that fits the screen. The entire movie was watched with a huge black border around it. Ridiculous. Next time, we'll stick to actual DVDs

Blast From the Past
Verified purchase
Any doubts you might have about the wisdom of reprising these classic characters are erased in nanoseconds once you hear Neil Simon's ballistic one-liners zinging from Oscar Madison's surly countenance. Although we haven't seen Oscar and Felix for 30-odd years, they clash like it was yesterday. Ageism taketh a mighty blow as you've never heard such fresh and funny geezer jokes.

Granted the film drags in the middle, and Simon wanders from his generally credible plotlines to the ridiculous (must be that move to Hollywood). But the opportunity to see Felix clear his sinuses in public again makes such venialities utterly forgivable. It's the same scene from the first Odd Couple, but you'll heartily welcome an encore because it's too funny to be wasted on one movie.

It's regrettable that Walter Matthau, one of the all-time great comic actors, was never cast as W.C. Fields during his film career; imagine what he could have done with that role. But I thank the stars he hooked up with Simon and Lemmon.

I appreciate the continued story from the tv series about Oscar and Felix's children . I did laugh at some scens . I found the police station gag too repetitive. Thank you,

Love Lemmon & Matthau
Verified purchase
Love Lemmon & Matthau. I find this film GREAT SILLY FUN. And for those of you who miss these film buddies, the film does not disappoint. I didn't even know here was an ODD COUPLE 2 until I saw it on cable four weeks ago. To me, is funnier now than the first because they are older, more 'kvetchy' and their predicaments [although perhaps contrived to some] make me intensely giggle. A good film for the family [although there are a few choice words].
